They Refused to Adjourn in Order to Hear Ex Secretary Foster Speak—Greetings From the Methodists. Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 5.—When the house of deputies of the Episcopal con vention commenced its fourth days’ ses sion this morning Dr. Morgan Dix, as chairman, read the appointment of Rev. Dr. Stone of Chicago, Brewster of I^ong Island, Lawrence of Massachusetts and George Fairbanks of Florida, a commit tee to fill vacancies on the committee on church unity. Then Rev. Dr. Glassbrook of New Jer sey renewed the resolution defeated last night that the house suspend business for the day to attend the mass meeting at the Lyceum theater. For this meeting Ex-Secretary of State Foster had come from Washington by invitation, it is un derstood, of some of the bishops and the arrangements for the gathering had been made by a joint local and conven tion committee. Rev. Dr. Nichols of Minneapolis said that there had been no understanding that the house would ad journ. and when a division had been chal lenged, so large a majority voted against adjournment that the yeas were not counted. Some of the leading delegates afterwards explained that no slight to the ex-secretary was intended, hut so much business was on hand that every hour was valuable. The committee on new diocese reported in favor of the divis ion of the diocese of California, Maryland and Kentucky and the creation of new sees, and the report was adopted. This action now goes to the house of bishops for its consideration. Dr. Ward of Ken tucky made a plea for the holding of the next convention at Louisville, and it was referred to the appropriate committee. For an hour there was a brilliant for ensic display between those members of the lower house of the convention who are opposed to the relinquishment of any prerogatives and the element that holds that the fathers of the church are en titled to a little more leeway and lati tude than was given them a. century ago. It was the same story of the first clause of the new constitution, and in which a large numer of the delegates are fighting to replace the stipulation In the old con stitution preventing the bishops from pigeon-holing legislation coming up fron below. It was not a threshing over of the old straw, however, for amendment was presented until the venerable Judge Wilder of this state clapped the climax by submitting a resolution to the follow ing audacious effect: “That so long as the house of bishops shall hold its legislative sessions with closed doors the house of ishops shall signify to the house of deputies their ap probation or disapprobation, the latter with objections in writing in three, days after the proposed act shall be reported to them for concurrence." This was the pending issue when the committee rose. The first section in question has been under debate for one entire and two portions of days and seems to be no nearer a final vote than when it was presented on Wednesday. To still further complicate matters the house of bishops has entered upon a re vision of the new constitution and canons on its own account. The result wall be that about the tiipe the revised revision goes up to the bishops from the deputies another revised revision will come to the deputies from the bishops. Just Where the prospective conditions will land the two houses neither bishops nor deputies seem to know. The one thing- apparent is that neither house can get through the volume in the two weeks of life that remains for the convention, and there seems to be no other alternative than after the wasting of much valuable time the postponement of the issue to the convention of 1898. This probably will be held in I^ouisville. Just as soon as the convention had approved the creation of new dioceses in California, Maryland and Kentucky and the magnificent copy of the revised prayer book approved at the last con vention had been presented, the delegates took up the constitutional pamphlet, which was thoroughly discussed. An other effort was then made to induce the convention to adjourn to the Lyceum and listen to the address of Ex-Secretary Foster. As the deputies were dispersing a resoultlon of greeting from the Meth odist conference now in session and in dorsing fraternity and good will between denominations in the interest of Chris tian unity was read by Dr. Dix. There was no afternoon session of this house. Just received one car fancy Ben Davis apples and one car fancy Virginia cabbage. Williams, Marks & Norton, 2023 and 2025 Morris avenue.

Not Coming Until Wednesday, October 23ri To the Southland People—Greeting: With a frelirifr of intense pride CcU. W. F. Cody (Buffalo Bill) and his asso ciate, Mr. Nate Saulsbury, turn at last to the southland of their own, their na tive country. When their tour shall have been made they will have completed the cycle of the United States and Europe with their marvelous exhibition, which —has been at once the wonder and the admiration of the world. | And let this solemn assurance be at once made, and made without ’ tiuallticalion—that the exhibition shall be, in every detail, as enormous in size, as cosmopolitan In character, as comprehen sive In every detail, in every city and town of the south as it has • been in I„ondon. Paris, Berlin, Vienna, New York, Boston, Fhila I delphin and at Chicago in 1S93, where it was made the one great ' representative American exhibition at the World's fair, ns well as an exhibition of the flower of the armies of England, France, ttermany, Russian and the United States. And to this Colonel Cody and Mr. Saulsbury pledge their honor. Furthermore, this southern tour will terminate at the great Atlanta exposition; selected by the gentlemen controlling that vast display of all the treasures of southern soil and southern blood, as the one vast entertaining and educational exhibit of the men and by the men who have blazed the way of the western empire of our common native land; in an actual exhibition by the * actual men of the rapidly disappearing semi-civilization of the Y far west. To such intensely interesting features are added the generous but fierce contention between the representative rough and trained riders of tho wot Id for supremacy as masters of the horse. Cowboys from the plains, vaqueros from Mexico, gauchos from the plains of Brazil and the Argentine Republic, contend with actual detachments of actual soldiers from the crack cavalry regiments of the United States. England, France, Germany, and the wild Cossack cavalry of Russia, riding the horses, wearing Ihe uniforms and bearing the arms prescribed and provided by their own respective governments. NOTE: Tho contract with the management of the Atlanta exhibition stipulates that the exhibition must be an exact dupli cate of the one given at the Columbian World's Fair at Chicago. The exhibition given here will be absolutely the same, man for man and horse for horse. And yet this tremendous exhibition is not a show. It must not be confounded with a circus. It is not a circus. It has noth ing In common with a circus, excepting the two items of men and horses. It does not exhibit under a tent, although its audl > ences are comfortably seited beneath canopies that shield from sun and rain. The exhlbi'ion Itself is in the open air, with Heav ”w other limitations to the freedom and action of the army of men and horses, in some parts of the programme numbering actually over 400. It is a novelty In its every detail. It Is as novel and unique as the circus is same and tame. See one eireus and you see all, excepting as to inconsequential details. The circus you have with you always; Buffalo Hill’s "Wild West you will only have this once. Already Col. Cody has perfected his plans to wind up his career at the coming World’s Fair in Paris, and he cannot again visit the south. Without Col. Cody there could be no Buffalo Bill’s Wild West. He and he alone Is the only man of all this earth who could assemble such an army as the one he will exhibit here: no other man could gain consent of the monarchs of Europe to their finest soldiers taking part in a public exhibition. What other man could bring the soldiers of France and Germany together in friendly contest? One thing more. Buffalo Bill’s Wild West exhibition will charge the south ern people not one penny more for admission and for seats than It has charged anywhere else in this country. Indeed in several cities of the north it charged more for seats than it will charge in the south on this tour. No other tenting ex hibition, show or circus is advertised to exhibit here now. nor probably will there be any. which has not exhibited throughout the north for 25 cents and to quote verbatim from Its own advertisements in newspapers, and on bills ’ml nro grammes, "Admission. 25 cens, which Includes a seat to every visitor.” Col. Codv would scorn such a discrimination against the southern people. His prices are the same north, east, south and west. Naturally It requires both time and money to visit a show or exhibition. If you have both to spare go again to the circus and see the same old thing, as we’l »s go to see Buffalo Bill’s Wild West, which Is the acknowledged sensational nov elty to both Europe and America. If you must make a choice between the two would It not be wise to save your money and invest In a visit to an exhibition already historic in the amusement and education of the world?
